View Full Version : Don't think I ever introduced myself!

I don't think I ever said hi, and I'm sorry about that! My name is Nancy...Ayla is a character in a series of books that I really love. I'm a single mom of 6 kids, but only 4 are still at home these days. So most of my layouts, if they are recent pics, include only the youngest 4, but the older 2 are always in myheart each and every day! I'm a registered nurse, and work in the Emergency Department. I love my job (even thru the really rough nights, like last night lol), and consider myself lucky to have a job that supports my family with only working 3 days a week!

Glad to be here, and thanks for reading.

Hi Nancy!

I wondered about "Ayla". I'm reading book 6 now, I've stayed up too late a couple of nights this week & that thing is sooooooooooo heavy. My poor arm (still recovering from surgery) has been very sore.

You are freaking me out a little... I have 6 kids as well, 4 are still at home (though the oldest is here for summer). I'm not single, but a soldier's wife, sometimes it feels pretty single. I'm not a nurse, I wanted to be in the medical field until 1, 2 then 3 came along. Luckily 5 of mine are boys & I get to practice my basic medical skills. A lot.

Your LO's are beautiful! And I love having you here.

Big smooches,

It's so nice to meet you. I am not a single mom. That sounds so hard to me. I have only two kids and still had no time when they were young. Both out of the house now. Grandson takes up time now. Soon he is gone too. Sounds like you have it all together. Happy to see you here.

Welcome to theStudio, Nancy!!!

I'm a reader, too. Let us know what book stars Ayla. Looking forward to seeing you around the forum! :)

Ayla is the main character in the "Clan of the Cave Bear" series, aka Earths Children, by Jean M. Auel. There are now 5, *blush*, and I'm reading the last one "The Painted Caves". They are very big, very heavy books but I thoroughly enjoy all the details, especially the healing through plants/holistically that's a huge part of the books.

Oh, thanks, T! I'll have to add those to my "to read" list!
